I may have to rename this project 21 Days of Crows and Magpies, instead of Birds. Molly and I arrived at Snow Mountain Ranch yesterday where we will spend the next 21 days working as volunteers. The number and variety of birds at this elevation deep in the Rockies at this time of year is very tiny. I’ve been checking with lots of people, and crows and magpies seem to be what’s available. However, part of the reason for embarking upon a project of this kind is to increase my photographic skills. Thus, if I really can’t find other birds, it will push me to become creative with what’s available. Tomorrow I will visit the ranger station for the US Forest Service and see if they can help me. Perhaps they know of some feeding stations.
